OLD Commissioner John Hagopian submitted the following report 
BUSINESS on Legislation for the Artistic Enrichment of Public 

Build ings„ The Chair ordered the report incorporated in 
the minutes of the meeting and requested that each member 
of the Commission give it their careful study and 
consideration and make their recommendations at the next 
meeting of the Commission: 

At the November 1963 meeting of this Commission, Commissioner John K. Hagopian 
first reported to the Commission members that he had been giving considerable 
thought to the possibility of attaining, by means of an ordinance amending the 
administrative code of the City and County of San Francisco, rather than by charter 
amendment, the Commission's long sought objective of having a percentage of the 
estimated gross project cost, of every public building to be constructed, allocated 
for the specific purpose of enhancing and beautifying such construction project 
with landscaping and works of art„ 

He further reported that towards this end he had conferred with City Attorney 
Thomas O'Connor, and that the latter had indicated agreement that such objective 
could be attained by ordinance. 

At the January 10, 1964 meeting of this body, he again reported that after further 
conferences with Mr. O'Connor, in which Commissioner Esherick and Secretary Dyer 
had joined, Mr. O'Connor had submitted to Commissioner Hagopian a draft of a 
proposed amendment to the administrative code, which the commissioner asked to have 
filed with the Commission, and which provides as follows: 

"AMENDING THE SAN FRANCISCO ADMINISTRATIVE CODE BY ADDING SECTION 
3.13 THERETO TO PROVIDE THAT FUTURE APPROPRIATIONS FOR BUILDING 
CONSTRUCTION SHALL INCLUDE A MINIMUM OF TOO PER CENT OF THE ESTIMATED 
GROSS PROJECT COST FOR THE SPECIFIC PURPOSES OF ENHANCING AND 
BEAUTIFYING THE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT WITH LANDSCAPING AND WORKS OF 
ART AlTD FOR APPROVALS BY THE ART COMMISSIOH. 

"Be it ordained by the People of the City and County of San Francisco: 

"Section 1. Chapter 3 of the San Francisco Administrative Code 
is hereby amended by adding thereto Section 3.13 reading as follows: 



- 5 - 



January 10, 1964 

AMENDMENT TC ADMINISTRATIVE CODE (Continued) 

"SEC. 3.13, To foster the beautif icaticn of the city and the 
development of the arts, all future appropriations for building con- 
struction by the city and county shall include an amount or amounts 
to be expended for the specific purposes of enhancing and beautify- 
ing the construction project with painting, sculpture, or other 
works of art, and landscaping, which amount or amounts shall be not 
less than a total of two per cent (2%) of the estimated gross project 
cost exclusive of such items 

"The amounts to be expended for landscaping and for each separate 
work of art shall be separately identified in the appropriation 
ordinances and shall be appropriated and allocated for each such 
specific purpose. Such appropriations shall be approved by the 
art commission before enactment of the appropriation ordinance by the 
board of supervisors. The commission shall decide upon such appro- 
priations within thirty (30) days after submission. If it fails so 
to do, its decision shall be considered unnecessary. 

"No work of art to be provided pursuant to the provisions of this 
section shall be contracted for unless the contract and the contractor 
shall have first been approved by the art commission. 

"When in the judgment of the art commission the nature and 
location of a structure make the requirements of this section unwar- 
ranted, such requirement shall be waived by the art commission. The 
art commission shall be the sole agency responsible for the approval 
of the aesthetic acceptability of works of art created under this 
section. 

"Nothing in this section contained shall be construed to limit 
or abridge the legal powers of the governing boards of the War 
Memorial, the M. H. deYoung Memorial Museum or the California Palace 
of the Legion of Honor." 

Commissioner Hagopian also reported that he had informally discussed the procedure 
with Mayor -elect Shelley, who had expressed hearty approval of the procedure. 

He moved that the President appoint a committee to include the President, for the 
purpose of conferring with the legislative committee of the Board of Supervisors 
and with other supervisors for the purpose of obtaining enactment of the proposed 
ordinance. 

MUSIC Commissioner Knuth submitted the following resolution 
COMMITTEE which was seconded by Comnissicner Harris and met with 
the unanimous approval of the Art Comission.

February 3, 1964 

OLD 

BUSINESS The Acting President, Mr. Hagopian, spoke of the proposed 

draft amending the San Francisco Administrative Code Adding 

Section 3.13 for the purpose of enhancing and beautifying municipal 

buildings with works of art and for approval by the Art Commission. 

The Secretary read the following letter from Mr. Esherick, 
former member of the Art Commission: 

"Dear Mr. Dyer: 

"Thank you for sending me a copy of the Amendment to the Administrative 
Code Adding Section 3«13« I would recommend that all references to 
landscaping be deleted from the ordinance. In the first place, we 
seem to be winning the battle with the city regarding landscaping and 
it seems to mo that its value is relatively clearly understood. I 
would not want the results of this ordinance to be that in order to 
avoid putting in any work of art or hiring an artist, that the 
particular agency would simply plant trees or lawns as a substitute. 
I think the point is that we need both and I further think, as I said 
above, that the city acknowledges already the necessity for land- 
scaping. 

"It may be that the draft whioh is not identified by date is the 
identical draft that we saw with Mr. O'Connor. In any case, it is one 
that I received on the 14th of January and have assumed that this is 
the revision. Perhaps you could clear this up before taking any action 

"Sincerely, 

"Joseph Esherick" 

Commissioner Jackson said she did not concur with 
Mr. Esherick' s recommendation that landscaping be deleted from the 
proposed ordinance. 

Commissioner Bransten stated that he believed the 
percentages should be increased from 2 percent to 3 percent. 

After considerable discussion on those two items, the 
Chair ruled that the committee meet again before consulting with the 
City Attorney for the final draft. 

NEW 

BUSINESS Mr. Hagopian, Acting President, appointed the following 
as a special committee for the decor in the new office in City Hall: 
Commissioner Rockwell, Chairman, Commissioner Jackson and 
Commissioner Sinton. 

Adjournment: There being no further business the meeting adjourned 
at 5 P.M. 

The next regular meeting will be held on Friday, 
March 6, 1964, at 3:45 P.M. in the office of the 
Commission, 100 Larkin Street. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Joseph H. Dyer, Jr. , Secretary 



February 3, 1964 

ADDENDUM 

Mr. Henry Schubart, Coordinator for the Art Commission on the Civic 
Center Plaza project, submitted the following report. No action was 
taken: 

"Mr. Harold Zellerbach 

Crown Zellerbach Corporation 

One Bush Street 

San Francisco, California 

"Dear Mr. Zellerbach: 

"Following is a brief resume of ny report to thu Art Commission at 
its meeting Friday, January 10, concerning the status of the Civic 
Center Plaza Competition. 

"(1) It was reported to the Commission that since policy 
agreement and approval, by both the Art Commission and the 
Park & Recreation Commission, was essential to the successful 
conclusion of the Competition, that issuance of the program 
should be temporarily held in abeyance pending reorganization 
of the Commissions. This will permit a full review of the 
program for the Competition and its objectives with the newly 
constituted Commissions. 

"It is estimated that the entire procedure of the Competition 
will consume close to one year. As it will involve pro- 
fessionals in many countries, it would be unfortunate to have 
any change of policy and plan occur during the currency of the 
Competition. 

"(2) I further reported to the Commission that, based on my 
discussions with Architects, Museum Directors and Critics 
while in Now York last spring, that the sum budgeted for 
construction would not allow great latitude in the type of 
scheme submitted. At both the Museum of Modern Art garden 
and the Lincoln Center Plaza, sums on the order of $400,000 
to $600,000 are being expended for major pieces of sculpture 
and attendant site work. This information was reported not 
so much to request an increase in the sums needed for the job, 
but rather to indicate that the accomplishments may be 
severely limited by the amount of funds available. 

"(3) The Competition was described as a two-stage Competition 
wherein the first stage would primarily involve development of 
schematic ideas and provide the Jury with a limited number of 
second stage competitors for detailed final designs. The 
second stage would probably involve three final competitors, 
all of whom would be brought to San Francisco to become 
completely familiar with the site and its surroundings and to 
be fully briefed on the technical problems involved at the 
Civic Center Plaza and its underground installations. 



February 3, 1964 

"Mr. Harold Zellerbach 

-2- 

January 17, 1964 

"(4) It is hoped that the Jury will be nade up of one 
foreigh designer, one well-known San Franciscan familiar 
with local character and one Juror with a broad back- 
ground in the arts and in art history. A tentative 
selection of Jurors has been nade although confimation 
of their tine schedule will be needed before final 
submission of their names to the Art Commission for 
approval. 

"(5) It was pointed out that the entire program, selection 
of the Jury and other details would be submitted to both 
the Art Commission and Park & Recreation Commission for 
approval. 

"^6) A specific request was made to the Commission for 
their suggestions concerning the ultimate use of the 
Plaza. It was noted that with the new Federal Building, 
the development of the Rapid Transit District plans, the 
Downtown Plan, and the Fox Theater Center that the 
character and use of the Civic Center Flaza nay be 
considerably nodified. Clear-cut expressions of the 
objective for the use and enjoyment of the Plaza will be 
essential for the Competitors, and as a basis for 
evaluation by the Jury. 

"Respectfully submitted, 

"Henry Schubart, Jr."

would remain as shown. 

"2. That the first paragraph in its entirety be raised 

approximately 3/16 inches to increase the space between 
the first and second paragraphs by the same amount. 

"3- That in the second line of the second paragraph the 
word "It ,? be deleted. That spacing of the line be 
adjusted to permit the word "Died" to be brought up from 
the third to the second line with the result that the 
words " T Don't Give Up the Ship'" appear on one line. 
The remaining text should then be adjusted so that the 
final word "our's" would not appear as a separate line. 

"4. The entire text should be exactly centered in the plaque.

separation should guide the layout of subsequent plaques. If such 
guidance is observed, the other plaques will bu acceptable to the

Civic Center Plaza Competition 
The following communication from Mr. Henry Schubart

"Mr. James McCarthy, Director 
City Planning Commission 

"Dear Mr. McCarthy: 

"For various reasons the Civic Center Plaza Competition has been 
delayed in its execution. However, the final program is scheduled to 
be submitted to the Art Commission at its meeting in July. 

"As a result of press stories and discussions within the profession, 
it is generally known that far reaching changes in the Civic Center 
development plan are currently under study. Priv te development of the 
Fox Theater site has also been announced. 

"In view of these changes in the area immediately surrounding the Civic 
Center Plaza, there is some question in my mind as to whether the 
program for the Competition should be based on the now existing official 
.development plan, or whether the competitors should be advised of the 
'nature and extent of the changes. It would be inappropriate for me as 
Professional Advisor to commit the further development of the Plaza

letter fron the City Planning Connission to the Art Commission, 
explaining the status of the changes in the development plan, be 
prepared in order that the Art Connission can properly decide its 
procedures. Although the changes in the plan nay not involve the 
surface of the Flaza itself, certainly the surrounding buildings, the 
character of the area, and the use of the Plaza will be affected by the 
ultimate revisions to the developnent plan. 

"Since we are now involved in a rush schedule to complete this work, we 
would appreciate your prompt attention to this request. 

"Sincerely yours, 

"Henry Schubart, Jr." 

Mr. Rockwell moved that the Art Connission fornally request the 
City Planning Connission to advise whether there are any probable 
changes in use or developnent of areas near the Civic Center Plaza that 
would affect the use of the Plaza and should be considered in the Civic 
Center Plaza conpetition as referred to in detail in the above letter. 

Registration Pee - Civic Center Plaza Competition 

The question was discussed with respect to charging 
' interested competitors a registration fee as this policy would eliminate 
an element not really serious in participating in the competition. 
The Chair requested that those commissioners having suggestions 
concerning the program for the competition send them in writing to 
Mr. Rockwell, Chairman of the Civic Design Committee.

Commissioner Esherick submitted the following communication: 

"To: Meubers of the Art Corliss ion 

"Subject r A Proposal for the Recognition by the Art Commission of 

Outstanding Works of Art or Design in the City of San Francisco 

"Dear Connissioncr Zellcrbach: 

"Fron tine to tine, in the course cf its review of public works, the Art Commission 
approves projects of unusual nerit and distinction, but no mechanise exists to call 
to public attention genuinely outstanding works. In addition, outside the sphere of 
the Connis3ion , s ac' vity, but essentially in the public domain, private projects 
ncriting equal publi. attention and commendation are constructed. 

"It is regrettable tnat no tradition — or at least no mechanise — exists for the 
recognition by the Art Commission of these projects. It would be relatively easy 
for the Civic Design Committee in the course of its normal work to nominate out- 
standing projects for later review upon the actual completion of the project. The 
review of private projects would not be so easily accomplished but it would be 
possible to work out a nominating system, to be reviewed by either a regular or 
special committee of the Art Commission, possibly a committee augmented by the 
addition of distinguished critics or patrons of the arts, to the end that a broad 
and comprehensive review of distinguished projects be nade. Conceivably both public 
and private projects could be reviewed at the sane time, and suitable recognition 
could be given outstanding works. Such recognition could be in the form of an 
appropriately designed certificate, and the awards night be nade in conjunction with 
other Art Commission activities — for example with the summer concerts or the Art 
Festival. 

"Very truly yours , 

"Joseph Esherick" 

The Chair requested that all members not present receive a copy of this 
connunication and instructed the Sccretan*' to put the subject on the agenda for the

"Dear Mr. Dyer: 

"At the Second Annual Conference of Bay Area Art Commissions in Santa Rosa on 
April 18, 1554, a suggestion was made that there be a Regional Art Commission 
Conference held each year in addition to our "local" one. This idea was that of 
Mr. Janes A. llussey, Chairman of the Seattle Municipal Art Commission, who was a 
visitor at our conference. There was general discussion on the subject and all 
those present thought it to be a splendid idea. The extent of the "Region" was 
thought of as being composed of the states of California, Oregon, Washington and 
Ilevada, although this could be expanded or shortened. The value of such a 
Regional Conference, it was felt, has been established by the success of the Bay 
Area Conferences. 

"The Santa Rosa Civic Art Commission wishes to put to your Commission the request 
that San Francisco be hosts to the First Regional Art Commission Conference. If 
you feel that this is a worthy endeavor and will accept this responsibility, I am 
sure that all the participants at the recent Bay Area Conference will be more than 
willing to assist in any way possible. 

"Sincerely, 

"SANTA ROSA CIVIC ART COMMISSION
